Today is my first official day off work. I finished last week emotionally and physically drained, yet totally blessed by all the love from the teachers and students toward me, and Baby G (our name for baby at school). Two classes threw baby showers for me, and the teachers had a shower for me after school on Friday, my last day as a Spanish teacher (for "who knows" how long...).
I have been really emotional lately. It has come and gone in waves during my pregnancy. I will hug John sometimes and just start bawling for no reason. I almost don't want him to see me, because I have no explanation, just that I am overwhelmed with emotions.
I am excited, nervous, and just plain overwhelmed that any day now, we could have a baby ____ (boy or girl) home with us, and we'll officially be 3, instead of two. I feel so blessed to have had such a healthy pregnancy, and all I can do is pray and give God the control of the baby's health. I feel the "mommy" worry creeping up on me already, and I know God has already taught me so much about His love for us through this process of becoming a mommy.
Just a thought or two on my first day as a stay at home soon-to-be mommy.
